Video: Farmchief SSE Ripper

By: Mark Fouhy

Check out this video preview of the Farmchief SSE Ripper test from the latest issue of Farm Trader magazine (#235).

Using the SSE ripper is very straight forward: connect to tractor 3 point linkage, lift park stand at rear of the implement and adjust depth gauge wheels on either side to desired depth you want to work. Obviously the deeper you set the ripper the harder it is going to be to pull, requiring more horse power and probably less speed.

The JD6190R was more than adequate for the job, even working down to 400-500mm depth in what I would describe as pretty wet conditions. The SSE5 is not a very heavy machine, so local soil conditions and the depth you want to work will determine what size tractor you would require.
